Excerpt: I have always owned electric dryers in the past, and I had actually never heard of the brand Roper before. So, naturally, I was a bit hesitant to try the Roper Gas Dryer. My previous home had a gas hook up capability in the laundry room, and with gas prices being so much lower than electricity prices, I decided to give it a try. Overall, this is an average dryer. There is nothing special or fancy about it, which I really like.
Excerpt: What a great dryer, we have had this dryer for few years and it still does afantastic job fo drying the clothes. It does great job and is quite quick at drying clothes, and we have a lot of laundry. We usually do at least two loads a day or more. It usually doesn't take more then a half and hour to forty five minutes to dry a nornal size load of clothes, The clothes come out looking nice and it is easy to use. Nice settings for haevy use and delicates.
Excerpt: We wash a lot of clothes, and I have had this dryer for nearly 5 years and it has yet to fail me in any capacity. More than great for the price. I'd buy another in a heartbeat. However, the only reason that I gave this appliance a 4 out of 5-star rating... is that the dryer vent is sometimes messy to clean and occassionally the lint falls to the bottom where you cannot get it back out. Also, it is getting a little bit louder when it runs now...
Roper 'Heavy Duty' dryer takes many cycles to dry clothes
22 February 2011
Excerpt: When I moved into my new apartment, they had these Roper washer and dryers installed. After using them for a few months, I took the washer and dryer I owned out of the garage, put the Ropers in the garage and now I am happy! For the record, the washer and dryer I own are Whirlpools - real Whirlpools, not the Roper, which is the lowest quality washer and dryer made by the Whirlpool company.
Excerpt: * The Bottom Line: * Make drying clothes fun not drudgery! These are my TOYS not work pieces. I enjoy laundry day now!This is one amazing dryer. We learned alot purchasing my front load washer (4 brands are all the same unit) & I wanted to end the side opening dryer that I always banged into hanging clothes. Plus we have a large drainage pipe that runs from ceiling to cement floor. So the door bangs into it alot.
Excerpt: I got this dryer to replace the GE I had for what seems like an eternity. At first I was a bit skeptical of the Roper name. I was not at all familiar with it, but after some research, I found that it was a division of Whirlpool; an dso I felt a bit more confident about it. I like the extra large door opening and how quiet it runs. My old one really let you know when it was running, so this one was a real treat!!! It dries thoroughly and quickly.
Roper Extra Heavy Duty Dryer, Love at first sight!
6 November 2010
Excerpt: I am so happy with my Roper Heavy Duty Dryer. It has been a joy to use from day one. The Roper Heavy Duty Washer and Dryer Set may not have cost a fortune to buy, but they sure run like we paid a whole lot of money for them. The dryer has an extra large capacity and therefore you are not as likely to end up with wrinkled clothes. The many cycles to pick from are excellent. I would certainly buy this set again and would recommend it to anyone.
Excerpt: You will get what you paid for with this dryer. It is a good purchase for the money paid. It does what it is meant to do and doesn't use a lot of power. I have to dry smaller loads or it won't dry in one cycle. I have to clean the lint trap daily or the dryer and the clothes inside become a mess. But still...a good dryer for the cost. You can't expect a maytag for the store brand price!
Excerpt: I recently purchased the Roper washer and dryer set. Have had no issues with the washer, but the dryer has been a disaster since day one. It will only dry clothes on the Very Dry setting and not very well at that sometimes. Was told the hose may be crimped...as if the installers didn't know this? Have pulled the dryer out, same results.
